Yeah, that's the point though. If you update your relationship status to 'in a relationship' or 'single' or 'engaged' or whatever. It still appears as news for everyone who is friends on their news feeds.

Lee, I have been drinking a lot of oolong tea. It's supposedly healthy right? I rarely drank anything but water until recently, and I hope this doesn't taint my teeth . Though, oolong smells very nice. Do you know of a good source to get good oolong loose tea in the US, or do you always get your tea from China / HK?

If you are OK with the caffeine, I don't see any problem with oolong. And for the teeth, just make sure you see your dental hygienist every 6 months.

You can buy good quality of loose tea in North America in any major cities with a decent Chinese population. I am not sure if you still live in the city you last told me. If there is no store specialise in tea, there may be good quality ones in Chinese supermarket.

If you want to know more, I can get more info.

Facebook is an essential tool, don't get me wrong, but I still think it's quite flawed. That doesn't stop me using it, though.

Most interesting news being dropped oh so very casually.

I still haven't told my parents, but I have told you. I feel like an irresponsible child.

Thanks!
Most children keep their parents posted on a need to know basis -- and particularly about relationships. Though I think normally boys confide less than girls.

This brings back so many memories of my living hand to mouth during law school Once a month, I got off the bus at a group of Chinese stores and bought tea because I couldn't afford coffee. I got a box of teabags for some ridiculous cheap price. I preferred Jasmine, but drank Oolong too. Lots and lots of tea during law school. But that was back when I could drink caffeine right before bed and still go to sleep.

Facebook annoys me and honestly some people post the most ridiculous detail there. Also they post their political crap that I loathe there too.

I don't dare look at that link, now that you've made that comparison.

It was originally meant as a sarcy question, but then Raquel confused the hell out of me.

I can definitely imagine girls confiding more than boys. It's more in their nature, generally.

Meh, I won't criticise Facebook just for the sake if it, because I use it a lot. It definitely has flaws, and some people use it in an annoying way.

I was listening to radio while driving Jr. to school. There was this game that all three contestants had to answer a question correctly to win the prize. Since it's election day, the question was "Who ran against Obama four years ago?" One answered John McCain and two other George W. Bush and this is freaking Arizona where John McCain is a senator since 1987.

It seems to be meant for advertising a lot of junk. Actually, pushing products. I barely use it.

I grew up drinking pu'er (a black tea), jasmine (a green tea) was too tame Oolong is kind of in-between. But my in-laws drank this and my mother-in-law brew it so strong that my stomach turns. I usually mix it with 5 parts of water I used to drink tea or coffee all day and had no problem sleeping at night. But since I stopped working in an office, I cut the caffeine intake and since then, lost the tolerance for caffeine.

Now, since I can't find loose tea leaf without caffeine except white tea which taste really lame to me so I most drank decaf black or red tea from teabags

I know what you mean.

A couple of (distant) friends have stared up bands, and because I friends with them on facebook, I am automatically on the notification list if their 'status' changes. So instead of just appearing on my news feed, I also get an email and a notification whenever they do something. Whether it be advertise their material or ask for people to come and watch them. I obviously wish all the best for them, but I don't want to be updated in such a way, and I find it quite rude. Problem is I have no idea how to prevent it.

On FB, there is a down arrow next to "home" on the top right hand corner, click it and there will be a drop down manual for account setting, from there, you can select notification settings there. You may want to tighten your privacy settings too.

I plan to do grocery shopping after dropping off Jr. tomorrow. Day match means the match starts when I have to leave home.

Well I will get home from school at 3:30pm, maybe the match will still be going on then, but at 4:00pm I have a driving lesson. So it's not worth bothering to sit down and watch it, if I'll have to get up again soon after.
